Mike, 

please don't introduce a transatlantic dichotomy where we can learn from 
each other. It is not helping your case either IMHO. BTW, the distinction 
between good cookies and bad cookies is as older than P3P and dates back to 
1996. And it is implemented in _every_ browser today. You have first party 
and third party cookies and I can instruct _all_ my browsers to throw away 
third party cookies. This is part of the problem, not part of the solution. 
And I hope we are working on solutions.
